Computer Security Experience

More and more litigation today relies on non-tangible evidence. The difference between a favorable or unfavorable ruling often comes down to how effective technical evidence can be explained to a non-technical judge and/or jury. Very few individuals have the ability to take confusing topics and make them clear. Dr. Cole, through extensive experience, training and aptitude as a security expert, has successfully helped many clients navigate the technical landscape, identify the key areas of focus and explain them in common terms. He can take the unknown and make it known and transform the complex into simple concepts.

Based on broad background and computer security specialist experience, Dr. Cole can provide value to the team on day one. Many times when an expert witness is brought on board, the attorneys have to explain the process and patents to them. By performing prior litigation and having obtained several patents as an inventor, Dr. Cole has an extensive understanding of the process, knows what to look for when reviewing a patent and can draw on his security expert knowledge to either support or invalidate the claims in a patent.

Having over 20 years of cross sector experience, Dr. Cole has a solid foundation of technical knowledge and computer security specialist expertise that he can draw upon. In addition, he is well respected in the cyber security and technical community. Many consider him one of the top authorities and experts on cyber security. He is well sought after for his guidance, expertise, explanation and solutions by both government and commercial organizations national and abroad.

Dr. Cole has a natural ability to explain complex, security topics to non-technical individuals. People are often amazed that topics that they had trouble understanding for years, after a short period with Dr. Cole, they fully understand and appreciate the technology. In a recent case, a client commented that Dr. Cole explained cryptography as if he invented it.

To lay the solid foundation that is required to be an expert, Dr. Cole holds a doctorate, masters and bachelors degree in Computer Science with an emphasis in cyber security and networking. He also has a minor in business and has held senior positions in international organizations and therefore has a solid understanding of business. While his primary focus is in technology, Dr. Cole has assisted many companies in evaluating, capturing and properly protecting their intellectual property. While at a major defense contractor he helped them capture over 50 patents.

Instead of hiring an unknown entity for your expert witness work, hire a validated, tested expert with extensive experience, someone who understands the process and who has seen the inside of a court room many times. He has given deposition and can clearly articulate answers under cross-examination. By holding many patents he understands the details of defending or invalidating a patent. Dr. Cole has worked on many cases as an expert witness including the FTC's case against Microsoft. Let Dr. Cole put his expertise to work for you.
